ENTER THE SANDWORM

Photo of Marco Casagrande's "Sandworm" by Nikita Wu

The play of light and shadow in this environmental art piece is breathtaking. “Sandworm” was built on the shores of Belgium by artist Marco Casagrande (note how his name pretty much guaranteed that he’d become an architect / designer…I love when your name matches your calling). I highly recommend you view the complete slideshow of this amazing project. People are using the Sandworm to meditate, hold picnics in, and just escape from the mundane.

OMG! U ♥ FENG SHUI !

The folks at fengshuiatwork.com put together this infographic and invited me to post it. Which of these facts do you find most interesting? For me it’s most interesting that there are 4 South American nations on the list of most feng shui interest and the USA is not even on the list. I might need to get me to Rio! Meanwhile, speaking of Feng Shui At Work…there is an entire archive of my Feng Shui At Work articles written for Working World Magazine of Los Angeles if you’re looking for some great career advice from Feng Shui By Fishgirl.

MATZAH MAGIC RECIPE

Passover came and went and I was invited to a seder at a gourmet foodie’s house. Soooo glad that happened because I was introduced to a fantastic concoction I would never have known about. Now I share it with you: matzah crackers with carmelized sugar and chocolate chips. I know, right? Delish! Here’s how I made my version of them as soon as I got home from the seder:

Spread out your matzah crackers (they are large squares) on a baking sheet. Then spread soft butter on the crackers being careful not to break the crackers. I use imported Irish butter which costs a lot more at the store but man does it have a distinctively rich creamy taste so it’s worth it. Put the baking sheet under your broiler not too close so maybe the second rack down from the flame. Then you must watch carefully–you just want the butter to get to the melting point, bring the pan out and then sprinkle brown sugar all over the butter. You can spread that out with a knife. Put the pan back under broiler again, this time watching carefully (it only takes a minute or two each time) til you see the sugar melting into brown caramel sauce. Remove pans and sprinkle mini-chocolate chips over the crackers. Use mini chips as the bigger ones do not stick well to the crackers. I then removed the cracker sheets from the baking sheets and put them on paper towels so that any melted butter would be soaked up. Let these sit awhile — a few hours even– to dry and harden. Then you can easily break them into lengths (see photo). There’s probably a more kosher way to do this but the hostess didn’t give me an actual recipe so I winged it. I served them in a pretty glass vase standing upright and they are ready to eat. Warning: they are addictive! We had them last night with vanilla ice cream, crumble the matzah magic on top of the ice cream –wow!  If you’d like to try another shiksa’s matzah recipe go to Martha Stewart’s blog.

WALKING ON BEACH GLASS

I’m stunned that this beach exists in California and I lived there for 16 years without ever hearing about it. A beach made of polished glass instead of sand! Well, technically glass is made out of sand. Check out the full post and lots more pictures here at the Unfinished Man blog.

HAPPINESS TO BRAD & ANGELINA!

It’s difficult to make any comment on the engagement of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie without sounding cliche. The only thing appropriate is this: Congratulations! It’s being reported in the media and confirmed by their publicity team that the couple have officially decided to “put a ring on it” after seven years of being together unmarried. I have always felt a special affinity for them because I fell in love with my guy the same year they fell in love, live together unmarried, and travel a lot together with kids in tow –although our kids are 2 dogs.  (Other similarities: my guy is a sexy original individualist Aquarian like Brad and I am an intelligent talented goddess like Angelina–what can I say? It helps.) The Hollywood power couple have gone on record as saying that they would not get married unless and until all  people have that right. They’ve also admitted that their 6 precocious and adorable children have been putting pressure on them to get married. While a date for a wedding has not been announced by the Pitt-Jolie family, getting engaged and telling the world of your intentions is a powerful action to deepening your love and commitment to each other. It’s also a wonderfully romantic thing to do in this age of cynicism and multiple divorce. Feng Shui By Fishgirl wishes this very public couple the best of luck and continuing success with raising their children, juggling amazing careers, and all of their philanthropy.
